“Proactive Approach to Minimize Lithium Pollution” with Dr. Alex Chow
Lithium is a chemical element that has recently gained much attention for its use in rechargeable batteries for electric vehicles and electronics. However, with recycling and re-use programs still in their infancy, there is a growing concern about potential lithium pollution. This episode, as part of our two-part miniseries on the Clean Water Act, Dr. Alex Chow discusses how we can learn from our past pollution mistakes and have a pro-active approach with this new potential pollutant. Don’t forget to listen to the end of the show for our student spotlight.
